(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Nearly 1,000 women from different walks of life attended free health check-ups at Qurum City Centre (QCC) and Muscat City Centre (MCC) recently.

The check-ups, organised by the American Heart Association,  Majid al Futtaim Group and the Medical Stimulation Centre, Oman, were held as part of the 'Go Red for Women' worldwide campaign to create awareness on cardiovascular diseases.

An event organiser said, ''Every year millions of women die of heart diseases worldwide. But these deaths are preventable. The prevalence of obesity is high among women in Oman. Many women who came for the tess were not even aware of their body mass index (BMI).''

Over the course of two weekends at QCC and MCC, experts from the Medical Simulation Centre, conducted a series of tests to check blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels of visitors. In addition, visitors were also offered advice on how to prevent cardiovascular diseases by maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

The team also trained more than 400 visitors on conducting cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Founded by the American Heart Association in 2004, Go Red for Women' has grown into a global campaign with more than 30 participating countries.<
